NEW YORK – The woman at the center of the Eliot Spitzer call girl scandal will have no problem cashing in on her notoriety: Penthouse and Hustler are already knocking on her door.

“We’ve been looking at that very closely. She’s young. She’s pretty. She’s a model,” said Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt. “We would love to do business with her, and we will approach her.”

Penthouse has been trying to reach out to 22-year-old Ashley Alexandra Dupre, too, but had yet to make contact Thursday afternoon.

Penthouse Magazine Group president and publisher Diane Silberstein said she would “love to have her in the magazine” and would consider offering her a cover shot.

“She sounds like a very interesting and talented young woman, and I’m sure she has a great story to tell,” Silberstein said. “We promise to make it worth her while.”
